It’s been said that you can’t hurry love.
We beg to differ – you can hurry along to Perthshire and fall head over heels with the Scottish countryside.
Prove The Supremes (or Phil Collins for the younger folk) wrong with today’s Big Deal on a relaxing stay at Moness House Hotel, Aberfeldy.
Less than two hours from all of Scotland’s major cities, the popular Moness Resort is quick and easy to get to.
And yet, tucked away in its own 35-acre woodland estate, it feels a long way from the daily grind.
Guests will be housed in a historic former hunting lodge, built in 1758. Now a welcoming, four star country house hotel, Moness House Hotel and Resort is ideal for a relaxing getaway.
Lovingly refurbished to retain the integrity of the original while introducing the essentials of modern day comfort, all the rooms are individually styled.
Moness produced a video last year, showcasing the resort – the video can be viewed here.
Valid until the 30th September 2018, this is a very flexible offer.
Of course, this Big Deal on Moness House Hotel break would also make an impressive gift.

Scottish restaurant in Perthshire
A popular feature of the resort, the Flemmyng Restaurant offers an excellent choice of fresh meat, fish and game sourced in Perthshire.
The menu changes daily but typical starters might be the haggis bon bons with a turnip purée; the pan-fried red mullet fillet with bean sprouts, leeks, sesame oil and soy or the wild mushroom and asparagus ravioli with a wild garlic foam.
Popular main courses include the roasted, corn-fed chicken breast wrapped in Ayrshire Bacon with haggis, turnip fondant and peppercorn sauce or the slow-braised Scottish Lamb shank with buttered mash, green beans, rosemary and a garlic reduction.
The Terrace offers a less formal setting and is an ideal choice for a lighter or more informal meal.
It’s very family-friendly and, as the name suggests, has the additional bonus of an outdoor terrace. When the sun is shining, it is ideal for enjoying a drink or al fresco meal.
See & do in Perthshire
The well presented grounds at Moness Resort are splendid for leisurely strolls – the duck pond and its family of mallards are always a popular destination.
Outside the resort, there are lots of opportunities for water sports, climbing and hill walking. The Birks of Aberfeldy attract lots of people who want a great view in return for nothing more strenuous than a gentle ramble.
Golfers will be happy to learn that there are over 40 courses nearby and the resort can help with tee times on courses such as Gleneagles.
Moness Hotel and Resort have inspired plenty of happy visitors to share their experiences on TripAdvisor. The following are from recent guests:
